Your Philly Vet

As one of Philadelphia’s only remaining privately owned veterinary practices, Art City Vets provides informed, comprehensive, and personalized veterinary care. These resources, plus the personal feel of our animal hospital, allow you to experience exceptional veterinary care in an intimate neighborhood setting. We are there for you and your pet when you need us. We love what we do, and hope you and your pet feel welcome to join the ACV family.

We are your Philly vet!

Art City Vets & Urgent Care was the first pet Urgent Care in the city of Philadelphia. We are a forward-thinking animal hospital, committed to the development and practice of innovative veterinary medicine. Situated in the heart of Philadelphia, our veterinarians pledge to treat your pet with compassion and professionalism putting his/her health and comfort first. Each of our patients is treated on an individual basis with their unique needs in mind. We will proudly see canines and felines. Our goal is to address all of your questions and concerns about your animal’s health while offering solutions and advice in a considerate, friendly manner.


Locally owned and operated by Philadelphia native, Dr. Edward Aller, the vision to start Art City Vets began from his desire to combine the level of medicine expected from a specialty/referral center with the warm, friendly feeling of a small, convenient neighborhood veterinarian.

He says, “being a member of this local community, I want to provide its residents with a compassionate and thorough experience for every pet that comes through my door. I feel that this community deserves that type of hands-on, individualized care that puts the pet’s experience first.”

We promise to do everything we can to provide the highest level of care to keep your pet well and thriving, while also nurturing the human-animal bond. We understand the benefits of positive interactions with animals in our lives and their profound impact on community health.

Meet Our Doctors

Hello, my name is Mabel

Mabel is our hospital cat that we rescued from Kitten Snatchers back in October of 2022. She is around 11 years old and has really opened up since moving to Art City Vets. Mabel has made the admin office her retirement home, which she greatly deserves after living on the streets of Philadelphia. The staff really enjoy giving her treats, affection, and playtime. Most days she is either curled up in her cat tent or running like crazy in her cat tunnel. She is missing all her teeth but is obsessed with cheese. We LOVE our senior kitty 💚
